Christmas Once a Month with Friends

Christmas Once a Month at The Crafty Quilter

I am so lucky to have some great blogging friends that are joining me for Christmas Once a Month!  I’d like to introduce you to Elaine from Summercrafter who has a super adorable Pretty Presents Table Runner Tutorial to share with you!

She used some of my favorite fabrics from Ruby by Bonnie & Camille for Moda.  The table runner measures approximately 10″ x 26″ so it’s perfect for a quick gift or to dress up an entry table.

Elaine has many more Christmas projects that she has been working on this year (you can find them here).  I hope you enjoy her holiday spirit and her lovely blog.

Amy from Amy Made That! has also been keeping up with Christmas each month and she has a beautiful snowflake pillow to show you.  This was her project for April and I can’t wait to see what May brings (no pressure, Amy)!

Isn’t that a bright and cheery holiday pillow?  You should see the back – I love Amy’s hidden zipper technique!

So, my project for this month is running a little behind schedule.  I will tell you that I’m using some embroidery hoops for this one.  And I have to show you some fabric that the post man brought me yesterday:

This is Winter’s Lane from Kate & Birdie Paper Co. for Moda.  I am in love.

I will be using just a tiny bit for this month’s project, but I’m thinking of something bigger for July.

Speaking of July, I’m hoping to have a Christmas in July blog hop and I’m looking for other bloggers to join me.  Elaine and Amy have given me the thumbs up.  Any other takers?  The more the merrier!  Contact me at julie{at}thecraftyquilter{dot}com for more details. (O.K. I have to admit that I don’t know why bloggers spell out the @’s and .’s in their email address.  I figured it’s a security thing so I’m going with it!)

I’ll be back soon with May’s Christmas Once a Month project!

  1. I think I’d be mad at you, if that’s possible…reading this post is going to cost me some money. That was my first glimpse of Winter’s Lane, and it’s love at first sight!!! Cannot WAIT to see more of it, and what you are making with it! 🙂
